This weather is déjà vu all over again. Don’t let the decent weather lull you into thinking winter is over. There is much more to come; remember where we live.

If you want to see something fun, worthwhile, heart warming and interesting check out the Michigan Special Olympics State Winter Games at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa starting Tuesday. Participants include approximately 900 athletes, 350 coaches and chaperones and 500 volunteers. The athletes will compete in six different sports that will be held at The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, Howe Ice Arena and Schuss Mountain. The sponsor of the Michigan Winter Games is Wertz Warriors, which have done it for many years and should be commended.

It’s almost the end of football season, which means it’s really the beginning of the winter doldrums.

Be very careful traveling, between the fog, ice, rain and snow there is a lot to to deal with. Take your time and get where you’re going.

Have fun, be kind, be careful, go patriotism.
